Lagos State government has denied and dismissed any report that it had lifted or was planning to suspend the lockdown rule to allow people celebrate the Easter holiday.
This was disclosed by the State Commissioner for Information, Gbenga Omotoso, on Thursday in Lagos.
He said the lockdown rule was still in full effect and advised people to adhere strictly to it.
He said “Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu has not relaxed any lockdown. The lockdown is still on and we appeal to Lagosians to continue to obey the directive to continue to be responsible because that is the only way the experts have said we can fight this disease.
